Melancholy semi-musical (with 13 songs by Alex Beaupain) about a young man (Louis Garrel) grieving after the sudden death of his longtime girlfriend (Ludivine Sagnier) from cardiac arrest, who turns for comfort to the girl's loving family including her sister (Chiara Mastroanni), his coworker and sometime lover (Clotilde Hesme) and a young male student (Gregoir Leprince-Ringuet) who, improbably, develops a romantic crush on him. In style, director Christophe Honore's bears faint echoes of Jacques Demy's 1960s films like "Umbrellas of Cherbourg," but even those trifles had far more dramatic interest and charm, while the casual sexual attitudes displayed by several of the characters here are morally problematic. In French. Subtitles. Nonmarital sexual encounters including same sex couplings, though nongraphic, some frank sexual talk, occasional crude language. O -- morally offensive. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.
